Salt Dough Ornaments

So yesterday I realized that Christmas is almost here.. And I have yet to do any Christmas crafts with the kids! This bring us to the salt dough ornaments. I wanted to make something that I had all the supplies for, and this doesn't require much so it was perfect.

What you will need: 2 cups of flour
                                  1 cup of salt
                                  1 cup of water
                                  Cookie cutters
                                  Baking sheet
                                  Mixing Bowl
                                  Rolling Pin

Instructions: Mix together salt and water, then gradually add in water as you mix together.
                      Flour the counter top so it doesn't stick, roll dough onto counter.
                      Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
                      Bake at 250 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until hard.
                      Paint when cool! Cover in clear coat afterwards if desired.

See? Really easy. My ornaments don't look very Christmasy though do they? Hehe.
